Yelp Review 1/30/2014
Ellie is by far the best acupuncturist I have visited. She takes the time to make sure she is doing everything possible for her patients' well-being. Her personality is incredibly calming and that peaceful energy channels into her treatments as well. She is also very gentle, at times I didn't even notice that she was inserting needles, I think this also stems from the fact that she is easy to talk to and will keep a conversation going to distract from any potential discomfort. Before starting acupuncture I regularly suffered from migraines. My migraines became much less frequent and less severe. I would recommend Ellie to anyone who was curious or wanted to try acupuncture. I'm just sad I moved away from the area!

"I went to Bodyscapes for a lower back injury. I had never tried acupuncture before. It was a wonderful experience. The space was inviting and everything was relaxing. The process didn't hurt and massage was incorporated as well. I almost fell asleep toward the end. It really helped me a lot and I felt remarkably better afterward. Overall I would highly recommend acupuncture and massage with Ellie. She really knows her stuff and is really great at what she does!"

I came across Ellie of Bodyscapes at a Green Festival this summer and am I ever so glad and grateful that I did! I had been experiencing some health issues for going on 9 months and had gone to three different Doctor's and been prescribed half a dozen different medications. After this ordeal I still saw no improvement in my condition and it actually worsened. I was at my wit's end and I thought Western medicine has done nothing but fail me so it's time to try an alternative. Ellie gave me a once over and after our first consultation we had a course of action to put me on the mend that included acupuncture, massage, Chinese herbs and a change in my diet. Her prices were reasonable, 12 weeks of treatment with her was less than I paid for two visits to the traditional Western doctor, and she was very accommodating in working with my budget. I've been seeing her for three months and I've seen tremendous improvements in my health and not only for the issue that I originally saw her for but for all over total wellness. Many of the changes to my diet that she suggested I follow for now will be habits that I adopt for the long run, I enjoy them that much.
Ellie is very knowledgeable and highly skilled in her trade. She has helped me with all of my questions and offered many suggestions and advice regarding food, exercise and improving on a healthy lifestyle. The fact that she gets to the root of what's causing your problems instead of throwing meds at it has been a life saver for me. I recommend that you visit Ellie for what ails you, I'm sure she can make it better!

I have been seeing Ellie at Bodyscapes in Evanston for about a year and I have to say, having acupuncture is the best decision I ever made. I was a bit nervous at first but Ellie made me feel relaxed and addressed my anxiety. She is an amazing person with whom I can relate which brings me back over and over again. I can't wait until my next appt. Thanks Ellie!
Ellie is amazing. She is professional and friendly. Always enjoyed going to get my acupuncture done. The place is so calming and clean. I love the fact she always uses clean sheet and gown per client. I can't wait for my next visit. - Ti
I struggled with shoulder and knee pain prior to visiting Bodyscapes. Through rigorous acupuncture and soothing massage sessions I no longer experience these painful joints.
If you are in need of acupuncture, massage, or even dietary advice see Ellie at Bodyscapes. The price is right! - Wade
November 2014 "I have gone to Ellie for acupuncture and massage. She is great to work with, and very knowledgeable. I was very nervous about receiving acupuncture because I have a huge fear of needles, but my anxiety didn't last long. She was very gentle and efficient in placing the needles. Her massage was very good too. I particularly like the work she has done on my neck and shoulders"
October 2014 "I came to Ellie because if had a pretty serious shoulder injury and needed someone who could do deep tissue massage and acupuncture as well. She was exactly the person I was looking for. Her deep tissue massage work helped to relax the knotted muscles and break up scar tissue, and the acupuncture helped to restore full range of motion. Plus her sensitive awareness of how the muscles were responding to the massage--when to go deeper and when to back off--were just the right touch. Anyone looking for a skilled healer should look no further. On top of it all, we had a great time talking and laughing, also great medicine!!"

"Ellie has, by far, the most skilled hands I have ever encountered - they could mold and sculpt steel if needed." - Ian
"After numerous miscarriages, I was finally able to give birth to a healthy baby girl. Combining Western medicine with Chinese herbs and acupuncture is definitely a successful combination." - Suzanne
"I learned a lot about managing my migraines at Bodyscapes. Through regular treatment and self-care, my migraines have been reduced by at least 75%." - Anne

I consider her a friend and family." - Doris (Doris passed away in March of 2013 at the age of 82. She was not only a client, but a friend. I loved Doris and will miss her greatly).
"Magical hands." - Adnan
